    played with an rx8

    so i was leaving work today and i notice an rx-8 behind me, since i never ran one before i was curious so i take off kinda slow and he gets right on my ass. after i notice this i decide to gun it through a slight s-bend to see if he would chase he did but i kept pulling, but that was a short race from 30-60 maybe. anyway we get to a light and are both turning the same way we couldnt do anything for a while cause it just a 2 lane road, one each way but after a couple mile it opens up so i try to get around a buick that was in front of me that couldnt make up their mind on which lane they wanted to be in. so i get back in the left and gun it so did the rx-8 which was right on my ass when i punched it. it didnt stay that way long i couldnt believe how quick i just pulled away. i have an a4 which as we all know isnt the best for roll races but i put at least 6 to at most 8 car lenghts on him from 40ish to 100ish. granted he had someone else in the car with him but werent these supposed to be mid 14ish cars from what all the mags said. the funnist part was the end though cause after i had shut it down and started breaking guess who has to come flying by mr. rx8 i guess he wanted to out break me going into the merge lol.
    my car is a 93 z28 k&n intake hooker exhaust, tb bypass, airfoil, high flow cat, vortec intake elbow

    You have a '93 LT1 eh? Well, from what I understand, RX-8's were very overrated in power. They look really cool, probably pretty light, but not very fast. I could be wrong tho...

    They have 237hp, around 170-180whp stock.

    lookin for a ws6

    The rx-8 was so overrated that Mazda had to give money back to the people that bought them new. Mazda claimed something like 15- 20 hp more than they actually made.

    That was ridiculous. What I dont get is how a 1993 RX7 has more horsepower (and is overall faster) than a 2004+ RX8

    Can you imagine the new C7 Vette being 375hp? LOL
